2014 Canton vs. Northeast Bradford Boys BasketballMANSFIELD - The Tigers outscored Sayre 29-15 in the first half on their way to a big NTL win on Friday night.

Mansfield forced a tie with the Redskins in the loss column atop the NTL Division II standings and the Tigers remain unbeaten at home this year, winning their 10th straight on their home court.

"It was a big win because I thought we went up to their gym and we played poorly and they beat us by 12 without Nate (Williams)," Mansfield coach Kipper Burleigh said. "I felt like they were playing good basketball. I watched them beat Muncy and saw them dismantle several teams. Our kids stepped up and played with great enthusiasm and energy."

Bo Burleigh led the Tigers with 20 points, five boards and three steals and J.P. Shaw had 13 points.

Brady Andrews on senior night had nine points, three rebounds, three assists and five steals and Chandler Correll had six points, seven boards and three blocked shots.

Bryce Zaparzynski had seven points, five boards and three steals and Jarrod Burd had four points in the win.

Nate Williams, who had averaged over 40 in his past four games, had 23 for Sayre.

"You can't stop him, but we knew where he was and after seeing the box scores he had the last five games, it sounds bad but I was happy with 23," Burleigh said. "I thought we rebounded very well for the first three and a half quarters."

Nick Sweet had 10 for Sayre and Marshall Higley finished with nine, while Cuyler Kochin and Marcos Velazquez had two points each.

Higley had seven boards and Sweet had five rebounds, while Williams had four assists and Murrelle had three assists.

Mansfield won the JV game 48-27 with Jordan Williams scoring 15.

"That's certainly part of the package to be able to do that," Notre Dame coach Bill Hopkins said of winning the division title. "We were able to start Zach Jones and Eric Brennan due to the kind act of Tom Agan and Nate Niles that both bowed out of their starting spots to let the two start a game in their careers. It's pretty classy to be able to acknowledge a teammate rather than thinking about themselves, especially in a me-me-me world."
